Quote from: Mandryka on December 05, 2022, 01:31:00 PMOver the past week I've been listening to the later sonatas (CD3) in Igor Zhukov's Telos set. I've never seen a good review of this recording but something keeps drawing me to it. When I first started to listen I thought to myself, this is Frenchified - Scriabin through the lens of early Messiaen, the Messiaen of 20 regards. I like it, it's not intense and virtuoso like Sofronitsky or Horowitz, but it is what it is and not another thing.Zhukov must be the only musician to have recorded all the sonatas twice. That shows some serious commitment to the music.

Quote from: Dry Brett Kavanaugh on January 25, 2023, 02:21:54 PMThe set arrived at my home, and I just checked Nos 4-6. To my ears the performance sounds languorous.

Quote from: Mandryka on January 26, 2023, 10:31:26 AMIf that's the Telos, it certainly is strange. I'm not sure what to make of it, but with music as complex and subtle as this, I want to hear everything.
Quote from: Dry Brett Kavanaugh on January 26, 2023, 10:29:55 AMGood explanations. They are the terms I would apply to describe the Ugorski performance.
Quote from: Dry Brett Kavanaugh on February 01, 2023, 07:39:32 PMI got the Telos set. I like it a lot. His performance is gentle, spacious and sensual- diametrically opposed to Horowitz. It's a nice change. Somehow, this performance reminds me of recent Pletnev. Both the players are sort of Wabi Sabi artists.
Quote from: Skogwald on February 05, 2023, 02:23:54 AMScriabin is an odd one for me. I can't stand his earlier music that is influenced by Chopin, but I absolutely loved his last sonata. Is there a great disc that only has his late stuff?
